During these meetings, the participants raised various issues and the chairing officers assured the participants that their genuine grievances pertaining to Police will be resolved on priority and the issues pertaining to civil administration will be taken up with the concerned departments for their early redressal.
During these meetings, the main focus was laid on the adherence to Covid appropriate behaviour especially on eve of Eid-ul-Adha and the participants were requested to avoid congregational prayers on the occasion so as to contain the spread of highly contagious Covid-19. Besides, cooperation was also sought from the participants to root out the menaces of drugs and other social crimes from the society.
While appreciating the efforts of Police in facilitating community interaction meets where participants express their opinion freely, the participants assured their full cooperation to Police in tackling social evils.
